testimony alleging the fbi had an informant inside the highest levels of al qaeda. before 9/11. this is "special report." >>> good evening. i'm bret baier. we have new information tonight on just how far ahead of the september 11th, 2001, terror attacks the u.s. government had any idea of how dangerous osama bin laden could be. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is here with fascinating details. >> thank you, bret. according to court documents the fbi source was in direct contact with osama bin laden eight years before the 9/11 attacks. it was clear even then that the al qaeda leader wanted to finance plots inside the u.s., and it appears none of this information was shared with the 9/11 commission, nor the relevant congressional committees. the human intelligence asset was run by this fbi agent. the connection to bin laden only came to light after he filed a discrimination suit against the bowero and his supervisor testified about the quality of his work and the assets he was running, quote, it was the only source i know in the bureau where we had a source
lumumba on democracy now! the day after he was elected. i asked him about the fbi's decision last are to place his former client, assata shakur, on the most wanted terrorist list. but before we play that clip, i want to ask you about the media 'sverage, he chokwe lumumba election, and some who call the most revolutionary man in america -- mayor in america, and a lack of coverage. i was watching the networks last night and open the "new york times" paper edition today and i did not see a reference. for night watching msnbc hours. i did not watch every single second son may have missed something, but i did not see a reference. as bill chandler said, he died late yesterday afternoon. >> i saw something in "the times" this morning -- >> online, yes. >> chokwe is somebody you have to give this much time to really talk about. this is a man who lived, if you will, multiple journeys in his life. and he was quixotic to people because on the one hand, you could easily stereotype him as being some sort of radical -- he would say he was a radical because he did not see that as being a bad thi
asked the prior f.b.i. director, since you say this muslim community is like every other community in the nation, you know, how are the other outreach programs going with licks, ists, the catt the buddhists, -- the catholics, the buddhists, the jews? there isn't any outreach program. there are violent people in every religion, but as thomas jefferson was so shocked to find out, there is one religion that has a small component of it that believes that a sure way to paradise is to kill innocent men, women and children because they don't those religiously like radicals do. it's the reason thomas jefferson got his own copy of the koran that the library of congress still has. he wanted to see for himself. he was so well-read. he couldn't believe there was a religion that had a book, a holy book for a basis that would allow anyone to interpret it in such a way as to kill innocent men, women and children. there have been, to be sure, purported christians over the ages that thought it was their duty to go about and brutalize people who were not christians, but anyone who studies the teach
$500. and law enforcement fears the currency is ideal for criminals. last october, the f.b.i. shut down the web site silk road, alleging it was a one-stop shop for drugs and weapons sold using bitcoins. >> it was and i'm sure has been used for illicit activities, but frankly, so has u.s. dollars and diamonds and gold over time. >> reporter: with the biggest bitcoin exchange planning to file for bankruptcy, sill pert announced plans today to create a new exchange and said he's consulting with major banks and with regulators. >> pelley: anthony, thanks very much. here's a rare picture that we received. the president of the united states meeting today with the speaker of the house. it is their first one-on-one meeting in the oval office since december of 2012. we're told that they agreed that there is much work to be done, though in this election year, there's considerable doubt that they will do it. president obama found another opponent on the phone today. he called hamid karzai, the president of afghanistan, and gave him an ultimatum concerning u.s. troops there. david martin has been l
says he's been playing it for 20 years, and he'll return to chicago next week to reclaim it. the f-b-i is reportedly taking a look at the david koschman case. the sun-times reports special prosecutor dan webb turned over his evidence to the feds last june. r-j vanecko ... a nephew of former mayor daley... pled guilty last month to throwing the punch that lead to koschman's death back in 2004. webb said he was unable to charge chicago police with breaking any law for botching the investigation. but he says some officers who were involved in the case may be under investigation for similar activities in other cases. the murder case against a suburban businessman may go to the jury by early next week. yesterday, a fourth woman, kathy rettke, testified she had an affair with allan kustok... and just a day after their first meeting, kustok's wife anita was found shot to death. prosecutors say kustok was a womanizer who wanted out of his marriage... and used an internet web site to meet women for discreet sex. the defense is challenging the way blood, gunpower residue, and other physical evid
of breath. he excused himself of the meeting, went next door to his regular office. and that's when his fbi security detail insisted that he go to the hospital. they called an ambulance. he was taken by ambulance to washington medstar hospital. i'm told by someone who was there that he was joking with some of the emts as he was being rushed to the hospital. and he is now in the hospital. he's resting comfortably. he's joking, talking to his doctors. so it appears whatever it was he's now in good shape. right now we don't know exactly what caused this, just that he complained of some faintness and some shortness of breath. >> and he's generally was regarded as pretty good condition, not overweight, tall and seemed to be just fine. so let's hope it's nothing serious. and you'll continue to monitor it for us. update us, evan, when you get more information. let's hope he's out of the hospital fairly soon. >>> other news including new information that's now surfacing about the new jersey so-called bridgegate scandal. documents have just been released revealing conversations between a former top
of homeland security and the fbi specifically, i think those relationships are good with secretary johnson in place but i think we will take some for the steps forward and will meet with him and a couple of weeks. team sport, something we have to work together. i'm concerned that our policy and laws lag behind us and part of that is educating people, the american people and our administration and congress and the courts on what's going on in this space. many of the issues that we've worked our way through over the last five years on the industry side working with the fisa court boils down to an understanding of what's going on in cyberspace. our ability to articulate it, and their understanding of what we are talking about. this makes this area especially difficult and one that i think we need to step back, set a framework for discussion with the american people. this is going to be actually important in setting up what we can and cannot be in cyberspace to protect this country. and for my perspective is going to be one of the big issues as we move forward. i think a precursor to that is g
. it is going way back, but it was such an unusual sting operation on the part of the fbi. in the mindsmained of some of the content creators out here in the entertainment industry. host: one of those individuals, an estimated 6000 --is former senator chris dodd. he gets to vote on best picture. he is the head of the motion picture association of america. he is paid $3.3 million a year. what is his main job? guest: he is the head of the trade association. for the motion picture business. the mpaa. in that role, he is the chief lobbyist for the entertainment business. the biggest issue facing the industry right now is piracy. the stealing of content, online piracy. this has been hugely vexing for the industry. it essentially hits them -- pits them against silicon valley. the entertainment business is not pursuing any legislation. what they are pursuing is to try to get some agreement with the googles of the world to do more to fight piracy. and, so that is essentially a standoff for a couple of years. host: we are talking with ted johnson, senior editor for "variety." on hillary clinton, shoul

to the world markets. so the economic aspects of this whether it's the new silk road, whether it's the fbi, whether it's promoting afghan businesses is something better think americans will continue to be interested in as part of this future relationship. and, finally, saw but i don't think that needs to be much detail but that's to keep focus on counter extremism but not just counterterrorism, extremism. afghanistan is still an important part of the area as well. so the region, economic issues, counter extremism, the foundations for future relationship in afghanistan and the united states. once again i thank the organizers of this to give me this opportunity and i look forward to the rest of the panel and your comments and questions. >> thank you. clare. >> thank you. and i would like to start also by thanking the organizers for all that they do on afghanistan, the region, and for this timely discussion. i've been asked to focus my remarks on governance and i would like to look back over the last decade, and draw a few lessons. shortly after the tragedy of 9/11, a few miles from here, a f
